If your brother is addicted to alcohol or drugs and he also has some history of mental health issues, then it’s likely he has a co occurring disorder. It is sometimes called a dual disorder, cos there are two problems and they need to be managed and treated.

A high percentage of people who abuse drugs or alcohol have what’s called a co occurring disorder. This is where there are two illnesses to treat. The problem is that one can mask the other, so it’s helpful that he has been diagnosed.

When I was looking for treatment for my drug abuse, I also had to consider treat-ment for the reason I began using drugs, and that was my depression. I couldt get off drugs without help, I looked for co-occurring disorders treatment centers. I found one I was able to look through the most popular questions and answers. It helped me feel not so alone. They are plenty of really good re-habs on here that offer help to those seeking help with their co occurring dis-order.

My brother got one of those dual diagnosis worksheets from he internet, and diagnosed himself with his co occurring disorder. Our uncle molested him, when he was 6. Nobody really knew about it until our uncle died. He was trying to get over it by abusing alcohol.

Co-occurring disorders according to samhs > is the coexistence of both a mental health and a substance use disorder. According to this people with mental health disorder are more likely than people without mental health disorders to experience an alcohol or substance use disorder. In some cases people receive treatment for one disorder while the other remains untreated because its hard to diagnose.
